WORKER—Length 11-12.5 mm., breadth of abdomen 5-5.5 mm.; quite similar to queen but pubescence relatively more elongate, with considerable variation in the pattern of pubescence on abdominal terga, with some black pubescence evident on the more median terga in some specimens.

DISTRIBUTION—Pacific Coast to Michigan, Quebec and Maine, July to October.


Kinds
Extracted from Jonathan Koch, James Strange,Paul Williams.2012. Bumble Bees of the Western United States. A product of the U.S. Forest Service and the Pollinator Partnership with funding from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation

Red-belted bumble bee

Status: Common

Select food plant genera: Cirsium, Melilotus, Arctium, Trifolium, Aster, Tanacetum

Tongue Length: Short

Distribution: Broadly distributed across the northern half of the U.S. and throughout the southern Rocky Mountains and the Sierra Nevada

Highly variable coloration; can be confused with B. melanopygus, B. bifarius, B. huntii, and B. sylvicola

Similar to many color patterns shown by both western and eastern North American bumble bees, but small bodied, short haired and with a very short face.

Mid leg basitarsus with the distal posterior corner rounded. Cheek length distinctly shorter than broad. Many other combinations of these color patterns are known, but the hair of T2 is almost always with at least a yellow crescent anteriorly (only rarely very much reduced). Hind basitarsus with the posterior margin evenly but not strongly arched. Hair length short and even, body size small.


Identification

Discussion. B. rufocinctus is most closely related to the European B. cullumanus and more distantly related to members of the subgenus Separata-bombus. In addition to the characters in the subgen¬eric diagnoses, B. rufocinctus differs from B. grtseo-collis and morrisoni in having longer, more sparse hair and more shiny integument This species varies greatly in color pattern (Figs. 105, 132). As a consequence, many infraspecific names have been applied (Milliron, 1973b). How¬ever, the color patterns do not vary in any ecogeo-graphic pattern. Several color patterns occur at sin¬gle localities (Thorp, 1962) and even in the same nest (Stephen, 1957). Thus, the application of sub¬species names to these patterns is inappropriate. The biology of this species has been discussed in considerable detail by Hobbs (1965b). He found females of all three species of Psithyrus (suckleyi, insularis, and fernaldae) and eggs laid by some P. insularis in nests of B. rufocinctus. However, he was unable to determine whether any Psithyrus were reared to adults. He also found that a conopid fly, Physocephala texana, killed a founding B. rufocinctus queen.

T his species is relalively abundant in Sioux County in nonhwestern Nebraska. A single mall! (1'0 111 \·Vest Point, CUlTling County, in eastern Nebraska, identified by M. H. Swenk, is, perhaps, mislabeled, or, perhaps, it W;IS carried out of the normal species range by wind or some other agency. J3 0mblls Tllfoci1'lctllS is another species which is highly \'ariable as to color. Stephen (1957) discussed this malleI' thoroughly and presented diagrillTlS of color patterns to be expeCled.

Females: Head hairs mainly black with yellow on ven ex and a few pale hairs near antennal [ossae; thorax with sides with hairs entirely yellow or black on posterior halves, dorsum ycllow anteriorly, usually with intcral'lI· band of black, but occasionally mesoscutum with large posteromedian patch of black hairs, scutell um usually entirely yellow, but occasionall y black mediobasally; tergu1l1 I with pile yellow; terget 2 and 3 with pile orange reel or black with yellow basally on 2 and apically on 3 or entirely black; lergum I) usually with pile yellow, rarely entirely bl;tck; tcrga 5 and 6 with pile black; leg hairs black; malar space distinctly sha ner than broad; ocelli placed on supraorbital line.
